Bulger, Holt, and the bunch: Worth it?

Postby Favre.com » Mon Nov 20, 2006 7:51 pm

With Pace out Stl hasn't looked this bad in years. I checked the scheduleand Stl play WAS and OAK during the championship weeks. In other words, very easy matchups (WAS is dead last in sacks this year).

What do you see out out of Stl for the rest of the year?

Is it worth to suffer (predicted) mediocrity for the rest of the regular season if you are sure they will light up WAS and OAK?

if your team is going to make the playoffs for sure, making a move for those players is great.

if you are fighting to get into the playoffs, you can't take a shot like that.

i dont know , are they going to be garbage vs. San Fran and the Cardinals? I think Bulger (just posted about this) and Holt are excellent buy lows. I have them both in one league, so maybe im telling myself that :).

SJax, Im worried about the run game more so but if you can get him low he's great. Anyone have something Im missing here? Two pathetic games, but it is the Rams and the Rams who were doing dang well recently.

They wee dang good before they lost Pace. SJax is the only guy I am still not worried about actually.

Good matchups? Washington maybe, but Oakland's O is so pathetic that it overshadows the fact that their D is actually pretty good. THey're 2nd in the league in passing yards given up. Top 15 in passing TDs given up. They're not very good in rushing yards allowed(6th from last), but have only given up 6 rushing TDs which is tied for 9th best.

On a sidenote, washington has only given up 3 rushing TDs thus far. On paper, SJax doesn't look like a good matchup those championship weeks.

I'm not liking being a Holt owner even more with Pace being out. Bulger was abused last week. Oakland's pass defense is pretty good anyway, so I probably wouldn't be looking to pick them up right now. :-/

On a side note, I would be looking to pick up SF's defense for this week. They are on a tear right now and have a decent chance to do some damage to Bulger...only caveat is that STL tends to play a little better at home. SF already beat them once this year, so hopefully it will work out. ;-D

BE CAREFUL though. I have Bulger/Sjax in one league and Bulger/Sjax/Holt in another.

Week 14 (1st week of playoffs in most leagues) STL. plays the BEARS :-o ....... Hopefully you may have a first week bye but it's just a little disclaimer.

important in a three tier playoff, but not most 4 team playoffs.
